All cruised out

Today is the last port of my last cruise for 2016… Limon, Costa Rica. As I write this, I am sitting at a coffee shop… doing what I do best.

Cruises have been a great way to see a lot of places, and I have had a great time on all of my adventures. Still, it is time to take a break and explore a new kind of travel.

Yes… I had already realized this months ago when I ordered the Scamp. Still, the Scamp wasn’t due until mid-January, so I opted for one last hurrah… a cruise through the Panama Canal.

Sure, the Scamp plan morphed into a Scotty trek. Bring… it… on.

So… why am I tired of cruising? Well… I love waking up in a new city and/or country each day, but… well, the average cruiser repulses me. There… I said it, it’s not me… it’s you. 😛

Ungrateful, entitled, lazy… these are the words that pop in my head at the moment. Yes… this is a generalization, but it my frame-of-mind at the moment. Maybe I will take my next cruise on Fathom.

Pioneered by Fathom, impact travel is a whole new category of travel: it’s travel with purpose. Travel that transforms lives. Sometimes including your own. Impact travel with Fathom provides the opportunity to build community with like-minded travelers, become immersed in another culture, and work alongside its people to create enduring social impact.

Maybe… maybe not. For now though, I am focused on the Scotty adventure. Yes… I am 3,266 Scotty miles from Atlanta, but I craving some time in the tin can.
